As a club member you will have the opportunity to take on club mates in a series of competitions throughout the year. These are not just about who is fastest on any one route. We have championships that require you to be a steady all rounder or handicap events that require you to demonstrate that you are trying harder than everyone else whatever your ability.
2021 Update. Due to the uncertainty over which races may actually take place this year, there will not be an ultra champs or summer series. What we are running instead is a virtual champs whereby you run certain race routes in certain months in your own time.
With Fell Races not being able to provide their usual charitable giving that so often accompanies the event, we have set up a virtual collection bucket into which you are welcome to add money you may have spent on race entries, which is then shared out among a number of charities.
The details of all this can be found on the Club Champs page.
Our Club Championship is a series of races consisting of short, medium and long distances which run throughout the year. Our Ultra Championship is for the lover of miles and enjoy a long day out on the hills and in contrast the Summer Series are a series of short races taking part, as the title implies, during summer months. The Summer Series is intended as ideal introduction to fell racing.
Various Score Events take place through the year, some in daylight, some in the dark. These are orienteering activities where you have to get to as many control points as possible within a given time. Here map reading skills are just as important as running fast. These dates vary and will usually be well advertised on the facebook group and group email. Often the score events might be opened up to neighbouring clubs, and likewise we might be invited to their competitions.
Results from previous years can be found on the Historic Results page, along with race ratings from previous years.
